Primarily I thought of it as the first step in a series of cursor rewriting
updating as I explained on the link. The PNG format is smaller, decompresses
faster and is more suited to this task. Maybe this is why Apple stores
cursordata in PNG format internally.....?
We talked a bit about in on #webkit, and sadly we don't have support for a
raster image format that supports full alpha, true color AND animation. Which
is why I filed a request to Apple for MNG support.

However, the other suggestions I have are not dependent on this, e.g. I could
make them in TIFF anyway.

alexey: as for the support of .cur files, yes that Google Maps cursor looks
terrible :-( Until ImageIO handles them properly, we should perhaps come up
with a better local solution.
